J. Jay McVicker: Show & Tell

Jesse Jay McVicker (1911-2004) was a student, faculty member, and, from 1959-1977, chair of the Department of Art at Oklahoma State University. Throughout his career, McVicker's work has been exhibited in major national and international galleries and museums. Centering Modernism acts as the first comprehensive survey of McVicker's career and oeuvre, and begins to tell the story of American modernism and all its diversity. 

Did you know J. Jay McVicker or have an artwork by him? Bring artwork, stories and memories of McVicker to share with exhibition curator Louise Siddons and other museum visitors. Throughout the exhibition, visitors can also record stories for the museum archives and share photographs in the artLAB.


"I aspire to rescue and preserve the knowledge and memories of McVicker, as he was a strong and influential component to the community and postwar modernism as a whole." —Louise Siddons, curator of Centering Modernism
